A New Database of Sea Shanties and Traditional Nautical Songs

Spotted via Reddit: Mainsail Café, a database of sea shanties and traditional nautical songs. The site contains information on almost 400 songs and over 120 albums. There’s also a collection of 47 printed items here. I get the impression this site is still filling out, but there’s already a lot to explore here, and there’s a great feature to pull random entries from the categories you’re exploring. One thing I noticed: no ads at all. Not even affiliate links in the album/book lists. Recommended.
